DEATH OF JOHN LYNCH

A Veteran of the First Vermont Cavalry and a Resident of Randolph.

Randolph, Oct. 26 - Yesterday afternoon about three o'clock, John Lynch, who had been confined to his bed since Tuesday, died of strangulated hernia and heart failure.

The funeral will be held tomorrow afternoon at one o'clock from his late home, the Rev. T.A. Howard, pastor of the Baptist church, officiating.

Mr. Lynch was born in Claremont, N.H., but came here to reside about 1860, shortly after his marriage to Miss Eliza Emma Freeman, of New York City. He enlisted here in the First Vermont cavalry and served through the civil war. He was a member of U.S. Grant G.A.R. post of this place, which will have charge of his funeral.

He had been a harness maker all his life and began business for himself soon after returning from the war. He sold out about three years ago because of ill-health but began work again only a few months ago.

He leaves a wife and one son, Edwin L. Lynch, who, with his wife, son Harry, and daughter, Hazel, are here to attend the funeral. Mr. Lynch was more than 60 years old. Interment will be in the South View cemetery.
